The recession hit my business hard. It's amazing to me how the government focusses on unemployment ratings while ignoring the business owners, the people who create the jobs. All around me I see businesses closing up, people who spent a lifetime building - losing their businesses, homes.. hope. We're invisible to this administration. As business slowed, I used the down time to study economics. That undertaking led to the Von Mises Institute. This venerable economics institute named 1 politician, 'The only seriously principled statesman to serve in the House of Representatives in the last 30 years.' Ron Paul. I began to listen to Paul. Then I read the book, 'The Costs of War - America's Pyhrric Victories' by John Denham. I come from a military family. My father was a Navy pilot in WWII. 've studied history, served in the Army and worked with the DOD. All of this has given me a given me a unique perspective that profoundly corroborated the platforms of just one candidate, Ron Paul.
I'm a 16 year US Army Veteran, Intel Analyst, Russian Linguist & Interrogator; Led to military service by the Lord; Led to study economics by the recession: Led by Economics to Ron Paul. All sensible roads lead to Ron Paul. God bless Ron Paul.
